U.S. Government Seizes BitTorrent Search Engine Domain and More http://bit.ly/hsNGvD or, this address below...

Bitcoin itself as a P2P client is safe from DHS and ICANN closures but what about the applications and various exchanges in the bitcoin universe like MtGox?

Just access them by IP address, not domain name.

IP addresses are not a 100% replacement for domain names; try it with some of the seized domains and see what happens.

Assuming the web server is still running and you know the ip then just put it in your hosts file with the now defunct domain, so that your browser will send the correct host so the web server will serve the right site and any absolute links on the site will work as well.

Seems that it's better to not use com, org, net or other USA domains anymore...

Bitcoin Core developer [PGP] Warning: For most, coin loss is a larger risk than coin theft. A disk can die any time. Regularly back up your wallet through FileBackup Wallet to an external storage or the (encrypted!) cloud. Use a separate offline wallet for storing larger amounts.

Register your domain outside of the states or use Tor links/ Freenet sites / use a dynamic DNS.

Tor Hidden Services would have my suggestion too. It allows hosters to allow access while being hidden from prying eyes  Cool

I wonder if the US Gov would go after domains like tor2web.com if everyone switched to Tor hidden services.

Is Tor2Web a university service that may cause a lot of discussion maybe even some good protests.
